Tugce Dayioglu

Within Tugce Dayioglu’s practice, she mainly works with the medium of painting. Through her exploration of multiple surfaces, she simultaneously juxtaposes them as various compositions. These compositions feature geometric patterns inspired by architecture and urban spaces. Through her development she has grown a strong interest in how the forms and colours relate with each other and how the dialogue created between the space and the painting can exist and evolve. Each form takes on an individual identity drawn from its original architectural context, then transformed into abstract shapes and patterns. The geometric forms transcend into ones with more visual volume and presence, fostering a dynamic interplay between the painting and its surrounding space.
